Be bear aware for spring

Posted: April 10, 2012 - 12:00am

April is when bears typically emerge from their dens looking for food for themselves and their young. There are already scattered reports of bear sightings around Juneau, Anchorage and on the Kenai Peninsula. said Riley Woodford, information officer for the Division of Wildlife Conservation

He said Alaskans need to remember to secure attractants such as garbage, bird seed and pet food so bears and other wildlife don’t find food around homes, in neighborhoods or at camps or cabins.

April is the state’s official Bear Awareness Month.
